Mid October and London temperatures are perfect, just perfect to sport bare legs alongside something that keeps you warm. Better take the opportunity while we can, before we know it it’s time to wrap up head to toe, and the black tights I usually dread so much. However, thanks to lovely 60′d mod inspirations from the Saint Laurent house this season I won’t mind really, now the hunt for the best black tights begins…

Happy Sunday you lovely ones!

If you haven’t yet tired of cosy, long sleeved, chunky turtlenecks, stay in there. I’ll most definitely keep drowning in mine along with the usual basics, no rocket science going on here, keeping things simple and comfortable, with a touch of print. Latest print addition is this bag by Sophie Hulme, the perfect compromise between clean lines, colour and functionality.

Wishing you all a glorious weekend!

After coming to terms with summertime sadness blues, fall has officially arrived in London. And like every year it’s not so sad after all as we can finally add those extra layers and bring out new seasons coats, scarves and ponchos. Latest addition in my own outerwear closet is this wool coat by Ganni, a chic, basic, timeless piece that I’ve been looking for a long time having had no intention digging too deep in the pockets.
May the layering begin!

Can a girl ever have enough of soft, chunky, cashmere turtle knits?
Judging from what’s dominating my wardrobe shelf in the knit department, apparently not. In my opinion, there’s nothing as cosy and versatile during fall as snuggling up in an oversized knit, preferable in shades of grey. Bags, shoes, come and go, but if there’s one item I find really worth investing in this is it.

Wishing you all a glorious sunny 1′st of October!

Happy Monday morning world!

Culottes have certainly been ruling my wardrobe this year in various fabrics and colours, and my love for them is still going strong. I love how they work so well casual dressed down with a chic cosy knit or more dressy with a blouse or top. On this particular day back in NY volume was apparently on my mind, volume on volume, just love breaking them rules.

Hedvig Opshaug August 2014-2

It’s been a while, but I firmly believe the world is still standing!
As you may know the semi annual fashion month tour is fully on, and so far I’ve been pretty much living in suitcases, spending more time in taxis between appointments and shows than in front of my laptop. The good thing though is that amongst my heavily packed suitcases there is space for inspiration that I’m storing on the go, and hopefully after having time to digest it all, we’ll have something to snack about in the darker months sets in.

Sartorial-wise I’ve sported  the dress+sneakers look a lot lately, either kimono dresses or little lace numbers. This has certainly been the year of sneakers and pointy flats, and from what I’ve seen so far it won’t be over very soon either.
Happy Tuesday  Everyone!

August have been a busy one, while it seems that most people have escaped cities for airy beach life I certainly have been on the run or in a flight. Jeans, blouse and sandal combo’s have become my simple choice of outfits, especially when you’re juggling early nursery drop offs and meetings.
Well, soon they are off again, the clothing I mean, I’ve saved the best of summer to the last, a very much longed for holiday ahead, beach life ahoy, see you in Mykonos!

Bossy me, probably loosing patience on my non-professional photographer friend around who just kindly offered to help (so sorry dear, please forgive me!).

If there’s a pattern I’ll never tire of it’s got to be plaids, something the piles of classical checked shirts and scarves in my wardrobe clearly proves. This fall season, like so many before, plaids are back, not that they ever left, last year was full on plaid-mania.

Anyway, I recently teamed up with the iconic brand Belstaff, well known for their waxed leather bikers and recent collaborations with David Beckham. However this brand has certainly more than bikers up their sleeves, and this wrap skirt for instance might end up being one of my favourite staples, teamed up with an oversized turtleneck knit and sneakers come fall.

Summertime Sadness

Hedvig Opshaug 23.08.2014-2

We’re getting there slowly, that time of summer when it gradually changes, you feel it in the air, the flowers are not strutting as much as they did a month back, friends and family gatherings are calling for reality, and in London yellow leaves already started falling. One month too early in my opinion but luckily there’s still a few more exciting escapes on my agenda before it’s time to roll up those sleeves. For those of you who’s got no more trips left, bless, and may August still be fabulous!

Meanwhile, the little clothes I’ve been wearing lately when I haven’t enjoyed beach life can be summed up by these loose jeans and blingy sandals. MiH jeans (also here and here), top by Celine, sandals by Marni (also here), watch by Larsson & Jennings, Ray Ban’s.

Diamonds & Signatures

August, I’m not sure what happened, but I guess losing track on time is a good sign when you’re holidaying, and that explains my absence here lately, amongst technical problems that resulted in several Mac-attacks for a while.

Well, I’m kicking off my August (and may it never end!) with my love for diamonds and personalised jewellery. As you may have noticed I’m a true fan of subtle pieces, and practically wear them every day, some which I never take off, same goes for my little girl. Though I’m a minimalist at heart my weakness are diamond pieces, and if I ever get close to over-accessorise I blame my love on them sparkling little things that I love combining with other special engraved pieces, #MYLOVE for those who might have noticed already.
Check out my latest collaboration with Monica Vinader here where I’m lined up with North-East-West and Central London girls.

Though I know many of you out there are addicted to the sweat, pain, and released endorphines that goes hand in hand with organised training, being honest, I’m certainly not one of them. However, we do what we gotta do, and number one thing to get me motivated to kick off a training session is fabulous sportswear, being honest again, it does count a whole lot if you’re as undedicated like me.

When I recently teamed up with Net-a-Porter’s newly launched lifestyle category Net-a-Sporter, who’s got an amazing selection of everything from gym wear to loungewear brands, I chose the most natural location, my childhood playground in the north of Norway. Except for feeling strong, beeing physical in wild nature has always given me a feeling of weightlessness and is fantastic for clearing your mind. Highly recommended you lovely ones, in style, lets get started shall we?

Happy mid July from sunny summery London!
Holiday season is just around the corner and right now I personally can’t wait for a city break and spend weightless days on the seaside. As part of my new mantra I’m opting to pack as light as possible, optimistically bringing along only one knitwear as a throw-on on cooler evenings, wish me luck!

Cropped days

I love a pair of cropped trousers, in fact I’m not an owner of anything that falls below my mid leg anymore, wide cropped, slim cropped, jeans cropped, and add cropped tops along with it throughout the summer. However, the trend barometer might say longer leg lengths come fall 2014, but lets wait shall we.
Hoping the sun is shining on you too!

It’s summer in the city, the tan and freckles are back on, and I’m fully enjoying by letting my skin breathe to the max, the behold and wellbeing of summer months.

Sartorial-wise I’ve been living in this jumpsuit, perfect on the daily run with sandals and easy to dress up with heels and a blazer, another all-rounder, yup, life doesn’t need to be so complicated, who’s got time for it?

When in Olso last week while being blessed by fantastic summery weather a trip to Aker Brygge and Tjuvholmen felt elementary. Enjoying fresh seafood, wine and ice-cream in the capital’s harbour is highly recommended while touristing on a warm summer day, watching the slow chilled speed of people and boat traffics, add that to your destination list if you need an escape from tumultuous city life.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
